This revised publication from NACHA – The Electronic Payments Association and the Council for Electronic Billing and Payment (CEBP) describes how billers and/or their processing partners can use the ACH Network for collecting bill payments and managing receivables in both business and consumer channels. Billers receive payments through many physical channels (mail, telephone, lockbox, etc.) that are slow and costly to process. By taking advantage of the efficiencies and cost-savings offered by processing payments electronically via the ACH, billers can see rapid improvements in timeliness of payment receipts, as well as significant processing cost reductions. This publication explains how to take advantage of the various ACH applications that will best suit their accounts receivable model(s). Appendices include B2B and B2C Receivables ROI calculators, a sample remittance processing/concentration questionnaire for RFP/RFI submissions and a sample ODFI/Originator agreement.
